Focus at different apertures

In this exercise I set my camera on to my tripod and set up next to my local canal looking up stream and focusing on to the cleaner blue and white boat moored in the middle of the image. I used my 50mm lens providing an aperture range between f/1.8 to f/22, ISO-500, I set my camera to Aperture Priority Mode and I took three photos.

Focus with a set aperture

In this exercise I wanted to find a suitable scene showing depth and I finally settled for this steel railed fence, I took three photos from the same position focusing on different points along the length of the fence. Using my 50mm f/1.8 primary lens, I set the widest aperture f/1.8 for a shallow depth of field, 1/2000sec, ISO-100 and made an exposure compensation adjustment to +1step.
